Its funny how we were all pissed off when people kept bringing this argument up in 2005, yet here we are doing the same thing to the Broncos. They did benefit from a soft schedule. Their record in games vs over-.500 teams is 2-3 (for comparison, ours is 5-1), so maybe they are just an average playoff team. The only good teams they beat were the Bengals and Ravens, neither of which are nearly as good as the Seahawks. Their soft schedule very well could lead them to a Super Bowl appearance thanks to home field advantage, just like the Seahawks in 2005. If they do reach the Super Bowl, I believe they are beatable.
That said, nobody gets to the Super Bowl without deserving it. You always have to beat at least two quality teams in the playoffs to get there. The Broncos will likely have to beat the Patriots.
